I want to bring to your attention the upcoming annual Summorum Pontificum pilgrimage to Rome 19-29 October. It is handled by Orbis Catholicus and my friend John Sonnen. I will be going, as chaplain. That means TLMs everyday and probably some spiffy meals.
I was with the pilgrimage last year and things went pretty well. I am pretty sure they will be even better this year.
This pilgrimage will coincide with the 4th Annual “Populus Summorum Pontificum” events. (See graphic below.)
This year, instead of going to Orvieto for a day trip we are going to go to Norcia! (Hint: Benedictines, sausage and the best BEER I’ve ever had – and they have a new chant CD HERE)
BTW.. it was in the context of last year’s trip that, during the visit to the Swiss Guards’ barracks, I started planning the Breastplate Project. I suspect that we will be very warmly received by them this year.
Also, we attended a Pontifical Mass with Card. Burke in St. Peter’s Basilica after the procession through the streets of Rome. I believe he will be the celebrant again this year. The pilgrimage overlaps with this…
